F’ing DST!

March 9, 2009

I’m so sick of DST! It’s a dumb system. It’s more trouble than it’s worth. Twice a year, it causes havoc and costs money when people forget to change their clocks. Not to mention the money spent by business and people trying to keep their computers/equipment up to date when the DST date changes!

If the government REALLY wanted to get people to adjust their habits to make more use of the daylight, they should change their business hours. Government employees would go to work earlier and get off earlier to preserve daylight but the real change would come from EVERYONE who was doing business with the government, they would change their hours also. That would have a trickle down effect and people wouldn’t have to screw with changing their clocks or hiring legions of programmers to fix the date on their legacy systems that doesn’t support the new DST change date!
